Building Future Leaders

Our students and staff enthusiastically celebrated the 100th Day of School. Our students have shown so much perseverance and growth this school year and have developed the skills, knowledge, and attitudes to be scholarly students. Our teachers have worked in collaboration with elementary counselors to create and deliver social emotional learning lessons that help our youth achieve their goals and build positive peer relationships. Wildwood Elementary is a place where everyone has something special to offer and we build the opportunities for our student to value each others differences and unique traits. The efforts of the staff and volunteers to create a climate of respect and high expectations are reflected in the accomplishments and achievements of our students and our school.
The core competencies of self awareness, social awareness, self regulation, relationship skills and responsible decision making contribute to development of our students and are essential tools for youth in their school careers and communities. Our future depends on a new generation of leaders empowered with skills like empathy, resilience and appreciation for diversity – enabling them to face challenges and find innovative solutions. I like to recognize our students who show these skills by handing out our Tiger Tickets and each month selecting 40 tigers to have lunch with me when they ROAR:

R espect ourselves and others
O ffer kindness and encouragement
A lways do your best

R eady to learn

I look forward to my next luncheon this month with another 40 Tigerific Students!


Sincerely,
Donna Vollmer
Principal

February- Black History Month

National Black History Month is a time to celebrate and commemorate the roles that African Americans have contributed economically, culturally, and socially to the development of the United States.


Conejo Valley Unified School District is committed to honoring and valuing the legacy, experiences, and contributions of African Americans, not just during February but yearlong. Teachers have various lessons and activities in their instructional units to celebrate and recognize the contributions African Americans have made in U.S. history.


For additional family resources you can visit Common Sense Media website and information on exploring Black History.

Food/Treat Classroom Policy

Wildwood follows the School Boards’ guidelines and believes that foods and beverages available to students should support the health curriculum.

1) No edible treats should be sent with children as a part of birthday festivities. Non-food items can be brought and teachers will pass them out at the end of the day.

2) Holiday curriculum and celebrations will be up to teacher discretion and may include food items up to 2 times per year.

3) Valentine’s Day cards and treats can be passed out, if the family chooses to do so, but MUST include all students in the class.

We Need Volunteers

Do you enjoy books, crafts, like working with kids and have a little extra time to spend at Wildwood? There are a couple areas on campus that need a little more support:

Library- help students return books, check out books and assist our IMT in the library. This can be either during your child's library time or any hour M-Th 9-2pm.

CreATE- help set up craft stations and transition students in and out of the MPR during their recess on Mondays 9:30-10:30am.

Send Mrs. Vollmer an email or give our office a call if this is something you can do for our school.

Thank you!

Counseling Corner- Bullying Education

Last month our students participated in the Great Kindness Challenge and were given many ways to show kindness everyday. It is also important that we teach our students when to speak up when there are others not being kind and repeatedly causing emotional or physical harm. Our school counselors have provided a great resource for families to review and take time to discuss the differences between bullying and conflicts.
